And I replied that I had a mission to fulfill this lifetime and wasn’t going to accept the invitation. Not yet. Another lifetime perhaps.
For me at least, this lifetime is not a race to get across the finish line. It’s about helping anyone else who needs the assistance to get across the finish line. Like you, I have a soul contract and a mission that arises out of it.
You remember the paralympics and the baseball games where whole teams stopped and helped an injured person across the finish line or to home base? It’s that kind of a time for me.
The action of foregoing one’s own liberation to see to that of others is called by Buddhists the bodhisattva vow. Bodhisattvas are founts of compassionate and loving service.
Not wanting to exaggerate, because a bodhisattva such as Buddhists are referring to is a most venerable being, we lightworkers in a milder fashion operate like bodhisattvas.
Not because we’re less magnificent. We’re not. We come from higher dimensions and the fact of higher dimensionality implies that we’ve ascended before.
But because our mission requires it. We agreed to work among the population in their milieus and according to their ways. We said we’d don dense bodies, forget our inheritance and aspects, and work on behalf of a planetary Ascension. All of us have been, as Archangel Michael calls it, “toned down.”
To contextualize Ascension, keep in mind that the enlightenment attendant upon it (Sahaja Samadhi) is an exalted state among terrestrial sages, as Ramana Maharshi exemplifies.
Fifty years ago, if I were to tell others that most of Earth’s population would have Sahaja Samadhi a little ways into the 21st Century, they’d have laughed at me. And yet here we are, buckling our seat belts.
In fact, fifty years ago, most spiritual people assumed that a lower level of enlightenment (Brahmajnana) was full enlightenment. Sahaja Samadhi was little known and almost never spoken of. This conversation could not have been had back then. Unless we’re content with talking to ourselves.
All who accept Ascension and have assimilated the needed light to survive in the more refined setting of the Fifth Dimension will ascend. They’ll have the experience so far gifted only to the rarest of sages on Earth. I’m not sure everyone fully appreciates the gift.
All are welcome to come along. And our job as lightworkers is to see that as many come along as possible.
We’re waiters at the banquet of Ascension. We’re stewards of the Mother’s bounty. We work in the same way as a bodhisattva.
